LeaseyBite 28, LeaseySticky Notes

This page contains an approximate transcript of the audio content for the LeaseyBite. For further step by step examples of how to use the Leasey features discussed, please consult the Leasey documentation.

Thank you for your interest in Leasey!

As you read a book, document, web page or even an Email, you may like to be reminded of the importance of specific text contained within it in the future. Or maybe you are browsing through your Email inbox, and you want to set a little note to remind yourself why you kept a particular message. If you are reading all the files in your music library, you may wish to attach a note to some of them to remind yourself that you would like to copy them elsewhere at a later date.

These are just a few examples of the power of a LeaseySticky Note. Many people annotate passages of text in books for example so they can be reminded of something which is important. As with all Leasey features, a LeaseyStickyNote is easy to set and delete if you wish to do so. Once set, and you reach the item in question in the future, you will hear the text you have typed into the LeaseyStickyNote.

So lets learn how to use LeaseySticky Notes.

Locate the line of text to which you wish to attach the LeaseyStickyNote.
Press the Leasey Key then S.
A Dialog Box will appear with an Edit Field in focus. Type the text you would like spoken when the line is focused in the future, such as, "This is the most important part of the document. I must quote it in my essay".
Now press Enter. You will hear the LeaseyStickyNote text you have entered being spoken back to you.

Press the Down Arrow key so as to move away from the line of text.
Press Up Arrow once more to focus upon the line of text you originally captured. JAWS will play a sound and will then speak the line, followed by the text you entered into the LeaseySticky Note. The LeaseyStickyNote text is spoken using the JAWS Message voice which, (if using the Eloquence speech synthesiser), is at a lower pitch by default. This is important so you can differentiate between text in the document and that which you have typed into the LeaseyStickyNote.

Now go ahead and find an Email in your Inbox, and again, attach a LeaseyStickyNote to it in the manner I've just described. Then, focus away from it, (perhaps by pressing Down Arrow), and move back to it with the Up Arrow key. You should hear the sound, the details of the message, followed by the text in the LeaseyStickyNote.

In order to delete LeaseyStickyNotes, press the Leasey Key then D.
A list of all the LeaseyStickyNotes will appear. The list contains the various text items to which LeaseyStickyNotes have been attached. Press the Up or Down Arrow keys to move through the available items. You will notice that, as you move, you will hear the line followed by the text you have composed for the LeaseyStickyNote. In this way, you can be completely sure that you are focused on the correct item to be deleted.
When you reach a LeaseyStickyNote you wish to delete, press Enter. You will be advised that it has been deleted.
At the top of the list of LeaseyStickyNotes to delete, there is an option to delete all of them. Press Enter on this item to carry out this action.

Keep your thoughts in order with LeaseySticky Notes.
